    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

bc75xlt rechargable battery problem

So, first off this bc75xlt works fine with normal alkalines. But when I remove them, flip the switch, and put in fully charged energizer 2500mah ( externally charged ), the scanner almost immediately starts flashing "batt". When I have charged these, or similar batteries ( no name from china ) internally I have the same problem. Interestingly I have been able to use the scanner on battery power for 6 or more hours with it constantly beeping and flashing "batt". Of note...I have never had rechargables working properly in this scanner, having first assumed the problem was the import no names. I now think it is a scanner problem but am hesitant to get it fixed or even replace it ( for almost the same pricing as sending it in ) when it could be something relatively simple. I am also hesitant to get the same model if I am just going to run into the same problem. Anyone have any suggestions?
